The garage is often one of most neglected spaces of our home. The garage space is occupied with a wide variety of smaller tools like wrenches, spanners, jacks as well as larger equipment such as lawn mowers, weed eaters, leaf blowers, and snow blowers. Of course we also tend to store the not-so fragrant fertilizers and pesticides out there as well.
A garage cabinet organizer is a must for all home owners with a garage. It is a convenient utility product. The market is full of different types of cabinets: the cheap ones for a casual home owner as well as the expensive ones which can last a lifetime. If you peep into your garage, you will find that you have stored a number of things in it like tools, garden equipment, wires, ropes, Christmas decorations, old newspapers and magazines, car maintenance material etc.
Whether you go with ready-made, custom, or recycled cabinets, you will need some basic skills and tools to safely attach wall cabinets. Be sure to use screws, not nails, and that the screws are long enough to penetrate the studs at least 1-1/2 inches. Consider the most practical height for your cabinets, so things can be reached easily. Whether you do the work yourself or hire it done, you will be proud to have a place for everything and everything in its place when you have got your new garage cabinets.
Garage cabinet system is the more convenient way to store things so that when you step into your garage, you know exactly where that long rope for your hammock is stored without pulling the whole place down and where to find that tool box to repair your kids bike. This is the basic idea of creating storage in garage - to organize things, sort them out and spend the least amount of time in searching for them.
In these garage storage cabinets, you can select the material to be used according to the usage of the unit. For heavy things, a tough particle board is required. You can also select the final finish, color and texture that go well with your garage`s paint and other accessories. The companies which provide services for custom garage cabinets provide free C.A.D. designing and estimate service, as well. Thus you can get things done within your budget and according to your requirement. Even after installation, maintenance service is provided and most of these are covered by a few years of warranty.
So do not think of your installation of garage cabinets as an expense. Think of it as an investment. The estimates that a good garage space can add $5,000 to $10,000 onto the resale value of the house. Not only will you be able to enjoy using your garage more, but you will be able to recoup most or all of the money spent on the garage storage solutions. And do not forget to USE the cabinets to "de-clutter" the garage and the house when it comes time to sell your home. As your listing agent will point out, "If a buyer sees your stuff scattered around, they will assume the house is not large enough to hold the buyer`s stuff either."
